New Constant Contact.
« on: November 20, 2012, 01:54:01 PM »
With excitement, we are happy to account that we now have a constant contact list!  For years weve tried to work around the system and email through our server, or work around using multiple gmail accounts.  After 1 month of using constant contact for my day job, we (artdc.org) realized it was long over due to start our own constant contact account to really make use of the list that we have here.

If you have an active account at the time we post this, your email will be added to the list.  Feel free to update or change your information, or remove yourself.  We value the information that we share, and wed hate to be amongst the many sources of spam out there.  Please note, removing your email from constant contact will not remove your email or account from artdc.org.  We will still reserve the right to occasionally blast the entire forum member lists for urgent issues.  If you wish to not receive forum site updates, please do that here .   Note that the forum updates and constant contact list are independent of each other, and removing your address from one will not impact the other..

Find the list here:
Constant Contact

Our goal is to develop this tool as a reliable email blast that will result in monthly or bi-monthly service.  We are open thoughts on the process.  We see this as a great potential service for fundraising to help us develop and promote more pop-up shows or other projects!

The most important blast would be a list of monthly events! As a lot of gallery events open on different days, i think a bi-monthly tool would be more useful than a monthly email.  That said we want to avoid over-frequent emails to keep our subscribers and click through numbers high. 

Please feel free to comment!

I really think we have a tremendous tool to offer stronger community awareness about events and businesses.  Weve built a following of artists and a long email list after over 8 years of existence.  Were excited about the thoughts of growing using this tool.  Lets discuss the positive side of this.

In the past the email list has been vital for planing popup events and searching for artists while jurying or maintaining gallery events.  Id like to see this grow.  Potentially a list of events worth seeing in the area, or reviews of events that are in progress...

We are loving this new tool.  Its a great way to get information and awareness out!  Weve started to mass mail a select number of calls for entry, so if you know of some, please post them in the now public artists opportunities board: http://artdc.org/forum/index.php?board=21.0   :mrgreen: :smt004
